I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.

I can longer put any fiscal confidence in the government.
"If the US Government was a family, they would be making $58,000 a year, they spend $75,000 a year, & are $327,000 in credit card debt. They are currently proposing BIG spending cuts to reduce their spending to $72,000 a year. These are the actual proportions of the federal budget & debt, reduced to a level that we can understand." ~Dave Ramsey

who can support confidence in any gov't arrangement that demands sacrifices from the more vulnerable members of our society;
but can't even rescind special perks given to the rich, much less ask them to do what is right and just?

where there is no fairness, there can be no trust

Those "vulnerable" members of society are not paying any part of the federal tax burden.

It is not a perk for the government to "let" people keep their own money unless you are an avowed communist who believes all the money belongs to the government to begin with.

The "rich" are already paying 75% of the burden at the federal level in addition to state and local taxes that exclude the so-called "vulnerable" from contributing.

Class warfare is not right and just.

Nor is coveting what your neighbor has and coveting shouldn't being anything any Christian would advocate.

There is nothing fair about people who contribute little to nothing to society demanding that those who are picking up the tax burden pay more and more and more.

In the end... i feel we need a revamp of the entire Tax system AND the Federal budget. This is simply unsustainable.

It used to be that when you taught people to spend less than they made, it was called "responsibility."

Now it's called, "extremism."
